When your spare room is stacked with small priority mail boxes that are just opened on one side that keep stacking because garbage day is only once a week.When you spend more time sharpening and toying with your Spydercos than you spend taking to your wife.Yep sure tell tale sign....

When the only folding knives you are really tempted to buy have a hole in their blades.

For example, Cabela's selling the Military for $220. The normal G-10 military.... Pisses me off since I have a gift card there from the holidays and would like to spend it on a knife, but it just doesn't make sense.
Yep. Field & Stream just opened up by me, has a great selection, all at or over MSRP. I'd just assume order directly from SFO if I'm gonna pay that much.

.... when you have a knife on order, and to pass the time while waiting for delivery, you browse your favorite dealers, and order yet another one.

.... when you had to buy a tool chest to hold all your Spydies, and you've filled all its drawers to overflowing.
Which Knife, A or B? get Both! (and C, D and E) :)

.......you go on vacation or are away for a long time, and the first thing you do when you get home (after the obligatory kisses to wife and kids) is to go check on your knife collection and handle a half dozen of them until you feel better...

Or drop the Tasman, eh David? ;) Sorry, hopefully you've now accepted your loss after these many months. Did you ever replace that after donating yours to the ocean?

When the wife looks over your shoulder as you browse a knife website and says "That's a nice Spydie....Get it"

When the wife insists that every set of keys in the house needs to have a Bug attached as a keyring.

When people nearly die of shock if you reply "Err....No, I haven't actually got a Spyderco on me"
Warhammer 40000 is- basically- Lord Of The Rings on a cocktail of every drug known to man and genuine lunar dust, stuck in a blender with Alien, Mechwarrior, Dune, Starship Troopers, Fahrenheit 451 and Star Wars, bathed in blood, turned up to eleventy billion, set on fire, and catapulted off into space screaming "WAAAGH!" and waving a chainsaw sword- without the happy ending.

It could double as one to carry while jogging or riding your bike as light weight would surely be a requirement. I was thinking the other day about hanging a Dragonfly Salt in the shower, but decided that was a bit ridiculous. I do however keep one at work, and one in my car and my wive's car as a backup if I forget.
